Expert Reeher Weighs in on Miner’s Potential Next Move
Former Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner has weighed in on what her next political move may be. She has said that she will not challenge John Katko for Congress, but opened up the option of taking on Andrew Cuomo in a Gubernatorial primary battle.Political Science expert and Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher talked about this decision, and why it makes sense for her, in a New York City and State article.
“He (Katko) has taken some high-profile positions and votes against Trump and the Republican leadership that strengthen his bona fides as a moderate and an independent voice – which is a good fit with the district,” Reeher said. “Miner can no doubt see that, and to risk being beaten badly would probably end her elective political career. Taking on a strong governor in a primary doesn’t pose the same downside risk.”
